Logistics Hotel: The room rate is approximately $190 per night. GSP/NFG will make all hotel arrangements, and participants will be invoiced by NFG for their hotel stay.
Flights: It is best to fly into the Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM). We encourage you to purchase your plane tickets now because this is a small regional airport and flights are limited. In case flights are sold out: the Birmingham airport is roughly 90 minutes away and Atlanta’s airport is 2 hours away.
The Funders delegation has been invited to several of the commemorative activities during the weekend. There are over 40 events over the course of the weekend. To review a full schedule of events please visit www.Selma50.com
